On Blues Traveler's latest record, Cover Yourself, the band reworks 11 of their own hits. John Popper and company visited our studios in December, with a sound so great that we decided it was worth another listen.

ALISON STEWART, Host:

Let's take a trip to the BPP Jukebox. A few months back, Blues Traveler's John Popper and Chan Kinchla came by our studios. By the way, our first guest who came to us directly from the Howard Stern show, but I digress. They chatted and performed from an album of covers of their own songs. How Meta? Blues Traveler, straight from the BPP Jukebox. Someone pass me a quarter, please.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG "REACH ME")

JOHN POPPER: And if I'm reaching you, don't you feel guilty...

STEWART: That was John Popper and Chan Kinchla of Blues Traveler doing "Reach Me," right here in the BPP studios back in December.
